The Lonely Engineer

It was a quiet evening at Kluskey’s. There were plenty of people enjoying the food, chatting around the bar and checking out the Wall, but not much of a buzz.

Too quiet, thought Tam Kluskey, and drew a long, foaming cornbeer, going to the end of the bar. An old man was sitting there, wearing baggy brown overalls. Jok Darrakin had spent most of his life travelling the stars. Now he worked for one of the many small companies providing tech services for starships in one of the League’s busiest ports. He called into Kluskey’s after work every day for a meal and a chat. One of Tam’s regulars, he could always be relied upon to spin a good story.
